Walker To Speak In Florida

Written by

(AP) Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to speak next week at a Florida event hosted by the conservative James Madison Institute. The institute says Walker plans to give a speech at a golf resort in Naples, Fla. Tickets for non-members ranged from $100 per person to $2,500 for table sponsorships. Institute spokeswoman Tanja Clendinen says ticket costs are covering expenses for the event, and none of the money raised will go to Walker.

Walker has been traveling across the country appearing at similar events as he's racked up more than $12 million to defend himself from a potential recall election. Recall organizers say they have submitted about 1 million signatures to force a recall election. It takes about 540,000. Election officials are in the process of verifying the signatures.

Big Storm Brewin

Written by

(AP) A powerful winter storm system that could dump a dozen inches of snow in blizzard conditions has been forecast for Nebraska and portions of adjacent states.  A blizzard warning has been issued for three southwest Nebraska counties and nearby portions of Kansas and Colorado. The National Weather Service says the warnings take effect at 11 p.m. MST Thursday. A blizzard watch extends to the northeast. Winter storm warnings and watches have been issued to take effect later Thursday or on Friday for the rest of Nebraska and much of southeast Wyoming, northeast Colorado, northwest Kansas and western Iowa. The service says the storm is expected to move into Nebraska late Thursday night and last into Saturday. Rain is expected to precede the snowfall in many areas.

GAB Posts Petitions Online

Written by

Since the Government Accountability Board decided to post recall petitions online Tuesday night, the GAB website has had over 54 thousand unique unique visitors to the site and over 1.2 million page hits....and it's growing. GAB Director, Kevin Kennedy, was asked if he thought the posting of petitions would be big.

In an online interview with Wisconsin Eye, Kennedy says it has not been a popular choice though with people concerned about privacy issues and they even fielded a call from the ACLU wanting more information about how they would post the petitions online.

Cullen Drops Out Of Governors Race

Written by

And then there was one.....for now. That's the latest count when looking at democratic challengers to the governor's post. Senator Tim Cullen of Janesville dropped out Wednesday.

He also said he cannot raise the $1 million to $2 million he believes is needed to deliver his message against other candidates with more resources and better name recognition. That leaves, for now, Kathleen Falk as the only declared candidate.

Deputies Look For Missing Man

Written by

A Monroe County man who was involved in an accident then fled the scene...is now missing. According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Department, 20 year Gene Cloud Jr. of Tomah, was last seen a week ago near Millston after his vehicle slid off the roadway and he ran into the woods. After the accident near Millston, Cloud ran into the woods after a deputy asked him for his driver's license. It was later found that he also had a warrant fo his arrest. Deputies tried to track the man with a bloodhound last weekend after some of his friends and family reported they had not heard from him. He was seen a short time later walking on a county highway, but his whereabouts since then are unknown. Deputies issued citations to Cloud for driving without a valid license and driving too fast for conditions.

Telemarketing Tops Complaint List

Written by
(AP) Telemarketing tops the list of consumer complaints to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Nearly 1,700 written complaints about telemarketing were sent to the department in 2011. Many of them were from people irritated by ``robo calls.'' That's an automated call to solicit business or personal information. Department administrator Sandy Chalmers says the agency gets about a dozen calls a day from consumers who want the practice to end. But, often they are difficult to stop because they're coming from overseas. Identity theft made the top 10 list for the first time. Complaints about telecom and Internet providers are also in the top 10.
